Conquer the 3 P's: Perfectionism, Procrastination, and Paralysis

Because of the ongoing popularity of an article I wrote last year called "The 3 'P's'-- Perfectionism, Procrastination and Paralysis," I decided to give a teleclass series on this subject.

You can read about it here.

Without a doubt, I believe that perfectionism, and the underlying insecurity that feeds it, is the main reason that so many academics end up stalling out on their writing projects.

I invite you to join us in this teleclass. The last teleclass series I gave, I can say with all modesty, was a smashing sucess. People really enjoyed the online progress page where we all posted our daily writing successes and difficulties, and a surprisingly active forum sprang up in the 6-day time period between the two classes. This time there will be 2 weeks, so more opportunity for learning and interaction. And of course, e-coaching from me. So check it out!
